Currently, Aculabs processes a limited number of tests in house – roughly 200 per day – while the majority of our samples are sent to LabCorp. Starting November 23rd, 2020, Aculabs is engaging an additional testing center to help combat some of the delays in reporting, by way of LabCorp, we have been experiencing.
To that end, Aculabs will have 2 avenues for testing, internally and via reference lab. Aculabs has available large, red specimen bags that do not feature a biohazard symbol on them. Clients can use these bags, in addition to the test code 3991 (CORONAVIRUS COVID-2 [SWAB]) AND the test code HAUS, to indicate that they wish to have priority testing performed on their specimen.
We ask that facilities use this service only in emergency situations as our current internal testing capacity is limited. All other testing will be sent to one of our two reference laboratories for analysis.
